Design Your Own Soap and Take it Home! Come to the Apple Barrel to design goat milk soap your way. You will be able to choose your own fragrance and colors and can make one large box of soap that is enough for two personalized bars of soap to take home. The soap will be ready the next day and you can cut into two standard size bars, or as 4 guest size bars. Sprinkle with glitter or keep it simple. Recommended ages 5 and up.
Reindeer Goats are Coming to Town! Make the season memorable by coming to the Apple Barrel for an individual or family photo with one of our reindeer goats. You will get to meet one of the holiday "reindeers" and smile big for that special picture that will become part of your family's memories for years to come.
Book a reservation, and you will receive a link that will include the best digital photo from your session, or upgrade to receive the entire set. Your photo session will be for one pose, but more poses can be taken for an additional cost.
Reindeer Goat Photos will be offered throughout the holiday season. Choose below to make a reservation for the next available session.
